Spring Riot Workshop

Posted April 15, 2019 at 5:48 am by

Join florist Siri Thor­son in explor­ing the inter­sec­tion of Dutch Mas­ter opu­lence and con­tem­po­rary flo­ral design. Work­ing with local and organ­i­cal­ly grown spring blooms, stu­dents will cre­ate a mod­ern cen­ter­piece inspired by the still life painters of the 17th and 18th century.

Basic prin­ci­ples of foam-free flo­ral design using a flower frog will be cov­ered, as well as tech­niques for suc­cess­ful­ly pho­tograph­ing your flo­ral mas­ter­pieces using nat­ur­al light.

Pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er Issha Marie will lead stu­dents in styling and cap­tur­ing their very own nature mort por­trait using their com­plet­ed arrange­ment and a vari­ety of unique nat­ur­al ephemera and objets d’art.

Siri will also share her favorite sources for grow­ing beau­ti­ful spring bulbs in your own garden.
